Cats are better that way, tried taking one from my dog, ended up staying up for 72 hours straight.

Win 7 x64 Home Premium (and x86 VirtualBox VM)/Win10

There are no problems showing in the report - the install is activated, validated, and genuine.

Computers that come pre-installed with Windows from large manufacturers usually come with two Product Keys.

OEM SLP: This is the key that came in Windows (from the factory). It works by connecting to a BIOS flag (the SLIC table) found only on computers from that Manufacturer. It also checks for the existence of proper matching licenses in the OS itself. Once it sees both, it self-activates every time the machine is rebooted. It shows on MS's database as being blocked, because it cannot be activated (by design) over the internet or by phone.

COA SLP: This is the key seen on the sticker located on the side, bottom or in the battery compartment of your machine. This key is for use if the OEM SLP self-activation stops working for whatever reason.

Thank you Noel!

I have a question although a day late and a dollar short.
I may have totally misunderstood your post #1.

At anytime while using your computer does Windows 7 indicate that your system is not activated or not genuine?

Product Key Does Not Match Current Windows SKU (Foreign product key?)
So short story, I work at a college tech site that fixes student and faculty computers. A foreign exchange student from Japan with a Sony Vaio (most likely from Japan as well) managed to get a virus on his computer and he was blocked off our network. Our policy is that we wipe and reinstall the OS...
